It is now more than six years since the start of the Arab Spring protests and uprisings that took place across the Middle East and North Africa.

This Chatham House event brings together four voices from the region to discuss the personal and political fallout of the uprising. What room has been left for protest and dissent in the aftermath of the uprisings across the region? And have the peoples and exiles from affected countries found new ways to agitate for change?
